This historic hotel was really a wonderful surprise!
The decor is a gorgeous mix of shabby chic and classic architecture paired with wonderful choices of textures, colors and odd dark flair. I so loved the decor I took photos so that I might redo some of my home in this style. (For even more gorgeous styling, check out the bar in the hotel complete with oil paintings, taxidermy and a beat-up disco ball. Excellent cocktails too!) The winding hallways in red and port glass on the stairway doors set the mood for the old (but clean!) building. The ambiance has been well cultivated. (This is not your average Ramada, Hilton, Holiday Inn or Westin so don't expect it.)
We stayed in a captain's suite which, compared to other hotels of the same caliber, was still at a good price for the city. We had our own bathroom as well as our own balcony. Unfortunately, there was work being done on the outside of the building so our access was blocked. (This also created a bit of a problem when the construction crew started drilling into the brick wall next to our bed and woke us up around 8am. At the end of our stay, when I asked for some consideration in this matter, they were very kind and with apologies, took one night off of our stay. This was handled well and to my complete satisfaction, and with my own work in the service industry I know that things happen beyond control, hence still a 5 star rating.)
I did peak into one of the smaller rooms and I will say, they are quite small. But I think if I were traveling with a friend or alone, I wouldn't have an issue with it. (Sharing a bunk bed with my husband though might be a bit too much.)
The location was perfect. This said, I will say that we enjoy walking a lot so a 30-60 minute walk is not a big deal for us. For those less inclined, the subway is very close and easy to use. Being close to the Hudson was lovely to walk up and down with our coffee in the morning. Another good morning walk nearby is The Highline, which is a great getaway from the streets down below. The immediate area had a quiet, residential feel. It was far enough away from the hustle and bustle but close enough to get to the heart of things without much effort.
The staff was sweet, attentive, and warm. When the hairdryer died, they brought a new one to our room. And when we came down later that night, the gentleman who helped us inquired about it, making sure everything was working well.
Overall, I was very happy with our stay. Next time I am in NYC, I will stay here as my preferred home.
